Good choice for local flavor

Have eaten at least weekly at this location at he corner of Padre Island Dr. and Weber. Good choice for breakfast especially. Many locations in Corpus Christi, all fairly good though there is some variation in owners and cooks betwen them all.

We were not very satisfied with our visit. The food was ok. The service was poor. Our waitress didn't speak English. The daily specials board said they had Happy Hour from 3-8p. My sister's and Inquired about the Blue Hawaiian on the board. No one knew how to make it. So we asked about Pina Colada they said yes. Excuse... More

This is our go to restaurant when we hit the coast. Delicious chips and salsa, their refried beans are perfect. The bulldog is sooo yummy!! Get one next time you go. Our kids love the bacon and egg tacos morning, noon and night. There is zero wait time and that is a big deal to us when every other seafood... More

Stopped for lunch as it looked busy, and busy often means good. Instincts were right and the food was very good, service too. Obviously a favourite of the locals and I can see why. Recommend it!

I was visiting Corpus Christi, Texas from St. Louis, Missouri and five of us had dinner here. The regular, coconut and mango margaritas were awesome. We all had them blended and the ice is so soft in the drink. The food was very good. I ordered the tamale plate and a side of salsa verde and guacamole and it was... More

We expected just decent, and were blown away by their food (both quality and quantity), good service, cleanliness, and very reasonable prices. I highly recommend steak with shrimp (#48 on their menu) but it would be difficult to go wrong with about anything. Their margarita served in a fishbowl-sized glass is not too shabby either

I love mexican and tex mex food. While this place is ok with nice variety and decent pricing, it pales in comparison to other mexican restaurants in the area and out on the island. So, if you have an option, keep looking.

Tried Taqueria Jalisco at Wooldridge Dr. The service was fast, and food was good. We ordered fajita for two. Shrimp was really good. The menu was priced reasonable. Will go back again.

The best shrimp cocktails we've had, hands-down! A huge schooner filled with at least 9 tender, medium-sized shrimp in a slightly spicy cocktail sauce - topped with a bunch of avocado slices. Their hot sauce is good and queso with chile (melted cheese dip) is very nice. They also make tasty micheladas.
